Yup. With the risk of hi-jacking the topic, does anyone know of a plug that 
reasonably well fits the European two-prong with the divider? The 
US/Japanese one with more narrow pins can be emulated with a standard 
two-prong power cable, given that you have a beefy enough 9VAC transformer 
in the other end so you don't accidentally plug it straight into the wall 
outlet, but that kind of cable even when split in the middle won't mate with 
the thicker pins on the European one.

Best regards
